Ministering in a Muslim Context is an introductory course designed for anyone who is now or will soon be working with Muslim people, either in a Muslim majority context or in places like the UK or the U.S. where Muslims are a minority. This course will run a total of five weeks (including the Course Orientation) along with an optional fifth week. The course will cover these main topics:
- Course Orientation
- Week 1 – Introduction to Islam
- Week 2 – Approaches to Muslims
- Week 3 – Islamic Spirituality
- Week 4 – Cultural Barriers for Muslims.
For those who are interested and have time, there will also be a bonus, optional Week 5 entitled The Impact of Islamic Fundamentalism on the Muslim World. In this optional week we will look at how Islam fits into the larger context of our world.

Come join millions of Christians worldwide who since 1993 regularly participate in this largest ongoing international call to Christians to pray for the Muslim world during the annual Ramadan. Ramadan is Islam’s important annual month of fasting and religious observation; in 2018 it started on May 15.
While we celebrate 25 years in 2018, this marks the 27th time (Muslims use a shorter lunar calendar year) that Christians around the world will join together to intentionally but respectfully learn about and pray for our world’s Muslim neighbors–with faith, hope and love–during their 30 days of Ramadan.
